    Then ok lor, since it has a great sensor, then you dun need a 5DMkII.

    Even if you are considering prostituting yourself, you can't buy a 5D MK2 with just one 'session'. Consider the costs: $3,800 (5D Mk2) divided by $150/session = 25 sessions. Assuming you can service 2 clients per night, that works out to 12.5 days, or approximately 2 weeks. Note that if you go via an agent, you only get 40% - that will set you back about one month.

    Choose wisely..
    thats assuming the TS is the $150 category to begin with. no offence to ts.

    LOL, thats 2 whole different story. i still feel that the picture sharpness at high ISO for a 5DmkII still beats everything else. the picture quality is still whole lot of difference. haha, if a compact can beat a FF. it will save me lots of trouble.

    hey mate. you still got money to buy a car and even zhng it in the past. on the bright side some of the 5D2 owners don't even drive.(Myself is one such person)....pls be more prudent in your finances..i don't know how much you earn and i don't need to know. but to sweat or use all your bonus just to buy a camera which earns nothing for u. i can't see the reasons for it.is like some of female friends...once get their bonus straight away go LV.

    Hobbies shld be no sweat to you....if you need loan or installments then something is really wrong.

    I do have installments on some of my toys but not all. and the reason is that i can't get a better deal by paying cash so might as well while i can keep the cash for investment. But if at any point i need to pay up the installment immediately,it is no problem for me and i have no need to sweat abt it.

    lol, sad to say. its my dad's car. i zhng it for him. wat a wrong move during my younger days.

    yah man, its a big no-no for me to pay by instalment. i did it once with my lappy and it was a wrong wrong move for my whole year finances.

    currently im still a part time student, part time worker. no way could i afford a car with those stuff below.

    Work for Leeman bros.

    They used to issue bonuses over 30mths. In HK, some said they got over 50mth! Imagine you just work as a janitor for 1k a month. Come CNY, you get 50k... Shoik right? You wont be looking at 5Dmii. You probably be on a honeymoon love shoot with a willing model and shoot till your heat's content...

    My friend from HK said that some bankers had 100mth bonuses. Now, thats a lie!

    Somehow, my casio calculator went into n mode when i punched in the numbers.
    So, a 144mth salary bonus is really possible.

    At the leeman treasury, you wont be shaking dollars off a tree. You probably be swimming in an olympic pool of cash with 500 babes waiting in line for you.

    study hard, work hard, earn hard... there no easy way, unless you go rob and steal which is an easy way to free lodging. there you can save till 5dmkxii.
